2/11/16:  
GREAT NEWS!   We have foster care for Baby Boy and he will be coming into WGSPR on Saturday!  We are so excited to get him out of the shelter!   We will be working with the shelter on the 4th brother.  Due to health issues with the owner, that has been delayed but rest assured we will be bringing him into rescue as well.

Valentino's (Formerly Hour Glass) vet report indicates that we need to continue the Doxycycline for the Lyme and Anaplasmosis.  We need to start him on 2000mg of Fish oily daily and he needs to be on Canine Renal dog food both wet and dry food.   We will need to have his urine and bloodwork re-checked once the Doxycycline is completed to assess further medical treatment.  Valentino also has some dental work - tooth extractions in his future.  Valentino also has lenticular sclerosis of his eyes that need to be monitored.  We also need to get Valentino a Lepto vaccination and he needs to be neutered, but we won't do that until the vet feels he is medically healthy to do that.   

 2/10/16: Cecil and Hour Glass made it into WGSPR rescue tonight. Both of these boys will need some tender loving care. We are getting both of them into the veterinarian on Thursday 2/11/16 for additional assessment of their medical conditions. We will continue to share what we find out. They are currently on antibiotic to treat the Lyme and Anaplasmosis.  Physically these boys need a little bit of weight to shed. They do have many scars on their faces either from bug bites or possbile fighting. The marks on their faces reminded us very much of what the OH 5 looked like when then came in. Cecil has a very pink, almost raw spot on his nose. Both of them have scabby pressure spots on their legs/hips from laying too long on hard surfaces.

Emotionally these boys are very very scared and skittish. Hour Glass shook the entire time as he is more scared and nervous than Cecil. They need socialization work with humans. They wouldn't take a treat, much less know what it was. As you can see in the pictures, they are blurred because they kept moving due to the stress they are going through. They are definitely in flight mode right now.   We were able to get a microchip in both of them before they left with their foster moms. The fosters that have stepped up to help these boys have their work cut out for them and we THANK THEM both for helping us help them.
Stay tuned as we learn more about these pups and as we watch them grow, learn, and blossom into beautiful GSPs with a much better outlook on life!

THANK YOU to those that have contributed to their YouCaring Fund at: https://www.youcaring.com/cecil-baby-boy-and-hour-glass-515209 We are committed to getting them healthy and showing them what a real GSPs life should be like.

2/9/16: Bittersweet night for WGSPR!
Bitter:
Baby Boy is still in need of foster care. WGSPR is working very hard to bring Baby Boy into rescue as well. Illinois Shorthair Rescue has also sent out a plea for help to assist WGSPR.

WGSPR was also made aware today that there is a 4th brother that is being surrendered to the shelter on Friday and he too will need rescue. WGSPR is working with the shelter to get more information on the 4th brother and we will post updates as soon as we receive it from the shelter. He to was part of the hoarding case.

Sweet:
Cecil and Hour Glass will be making their way into WGSPR on Wednesday 2/10/16. We have two fosters that stepped up and we will get them settled into foster care late Wednesday as they have about a 6 hour journey!

WGSPR will be getting Cecil and Hour Glass into vet care by the end of the week to assess their overall health condition and determine proper treatment plans including treating the Lyme, Anaplasmosis, neutering, vaccinations, microchipping and addressing their other health issues.
